Thrift for Goodness Sake!

A non-profit thrift store devoted to supporting those who find themselves destitute, traumatized and homeless.  

Lives changed...

People are welcomed here from all over the country.  Some have amazing stories of how they got here and why.  Since 1957 we have been feeding nutritious warm meals and providing safe emergency shelter and clothing to anyone in need.   Over the last ten years our greatest growth has been in healing and recovery.  In a sober, faith-based community of love and support people re-discover dignity, find hope and learn that God doesn't make mistakes.  

Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others.  Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up.  1 Cor 13: 7  TPT

2020-2021 FY Annual  Summary

Solving homelessness requires a human-to-human, heart-to-heart connection. 41,000 men, women and children had a warm bed in 2020-2021. These were people who had no other place to go. We fed a lot of hungry people; 65,000 meals utilizing 72 tons of rescued food.  This is food close to expiration from local grocery stores and restaurants that would have otherwise landed in city dumpsters. We take excess rescued food to the Flagstaff Family Food Center.  We are a faith-based organization.  Faith is not a requirement for food, clothing and shelter but 69 people chose to believe that they were created for a purpose, that their life is valuable; they were transformed by the life-changing reality of the gospel and the radical love of Jesus Christ.
